Located at Quai l’Hirondelle, the Monaco Yacht Show’s new sailing yacht area will be very much incorporated within the larger layout of the show. This is expected to encourage a crossover in interest between sailing and motor yacht enthusiasts, giving world-famous sailing yacht builders a chance to showcase their cutting-edge technology and premium standard of comfort to a market that may have otherwise been closed to them.
Renowned sailing yacht experts such as McConaghy Boats, Malcolm McKeon Yacht Design, Wally, Southern Wind and Baltic Yachts (to name but a few) will be on-site at the show’s new sailing yacht area to answer any sailing-related questions or interest from prospective clients. Amongst the show-stopping sailing yachts expected to exhibit at the show are Wally’s new WHY200, Malcolm McKeon’s award-winning Ribelle and Morgana, Southern Wind’s spectacular performance cruiser.
The Monaco Yacht Show’s new sailing yacht area is just one of a number of subtle revamps in line with the show’s pledge to target the most pressing marketing challenges facing the superyacht industry. After a year-long hiatus, in which the show organisers took the opportunity to conduct an ‘in-depth research initiative’ with leading industry partners, visitors and exhibitors alike can expect to attend a 2021 event that is more in tune with the social, economic and environmental changes in the luxury sector than ever before.
